Phoenix – Five Sentence Fiction

He left me seared, inflamed, incandescent.

I drew myself up, determined that my inner fire would rise from the embers.

Singed and scorched, I breathed, hot air searing my lungs.

My spirit had been burned, but not doused completely.

I will rise and set the world alight once more.

Tang – Five Sentence Fiction

Tang.

Salt tang.

Sweet oblivion, for without the dark, there can be no light.

I float, rise above my earth-bound body.

You wash over me and now, now I am whole.

The Cast – Five Sentence Fiction

Writers-Block-300x200

I can’t sleep – my brain is churning, cogitating, processing, analysing, digesting.

Who are these people?

What do they look like, where do they live, do they drink tea or coffee, do they smoke, do they have families, do they have an agenda, and if so, what?

I wish they would reveal their secrets more easily, I wish they would pour out their life stories, without me having to reel them in like so many wriggling, writhing salmon.

But on the other hand, pinning these people down – it’s at least half the fun.
